:-) I love that you figured that out!!
now if only, your body will actually cooperate and follow that plan right??

I let my fitbit tell me, how many calories I can eat or what my caloric deficit is each day...

So I was trying to figure out my expected weight loss will be given my current caloric intake and exercise. So I did the math.

So my BMR is about 1500 -- that's how many calories my body uses per day to "function"
you can calculate yours here: http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/

So Calories In - Calories Out math
1000 calories from food - 1500 calories from BMR - 200 calories from exercise =
- 700 calories

1 pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories.
So at this rate I should lose 1 pound every 5 days (700 x 5 = 3500)
